2018 – 2019 Jockey of the Month Awards
January Jockey of the Month – Sam Jukes
The PPORA Road To Stratford Jockey of the Month Awards shine the spotlight on noteworthy and remarkable riding achievements from around the Areas, as with all of our “… of the Month” awards it’s not just about riding the most winners it’s about recognising personal achievement in the widest sense of the word In 2017 – 2018 every winner had a story to tell, but it was Charlie Dando’s remarkable openness and personal achievement and that stole the show on social media as our most popular Monthly Award winner of the season. These awards are a great opportunity to find out more about the riders who make our sport so exciting to watch. In the course of every season we see riders ranging from the true Corinthians who swop week day desk jobs for saddles at weekends to ambitious newcomers with dreams of professional riding career. There are plenty of inspiring stories to discover and we’re really looking forward to finding out more about this season’s winners click here for information on how to get involved
We’ll make 5 of these awards between November and Mid-May – we’ll then announce an overall “… of the Season” winner who we’ll invite to join us at the PPORA Grassroots Awards Lunch on Friday 31st of May.
